New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski has been suspended for one game for hitting Buffalo Bills player Tre’Davious White.

The news was reported by several media members Monday afternoon.

This is ridiculous. As I already said, Gronk shouldn’t have thrown that hit.

However, a fine would have been much more appropriate. You can’t dog a guy up the field, and then act shocked when he turns around and retaliates. Again, not saying what Gronk did was right. He should have had more self-control. I’m simply saying that it’s understandable why he lost his cool.

It makes perfect sense for a player to snap over something like that. I think a suspension is a bit much. Take some of his money, and move on.
